    The original DS was released in 2004, and to this day, no hax for Download Play had been made.

    Until now.

    Gericom found an exploit in DS Download Station, allowing us to run any homebrew we'd like over DS download play.

    Source code for dspatch: https://github.com/Gericom/dspatch

    Enjoy!

    Exploit: shutterbug2000, Gericom, and Apache Thunder

    And if you want to load unsupported flashcarts on a DSi:

    Amazing. Does this mean free DSi Hax finally? (I.e. could it write to the system/SD card?)

    Yes, that's why it's an exploit. c:

    No, this exploit does not provide any SD/NAND R/W access as it runs in NTR mode.

    No.
    It works with every DS, from the original to the 3DS/2DS.

    All you need is one flashcard, a DS Download Station Vol. 1 (USA) ROM for the flashcard, and two DS systems.

    I don't think the DS Download Station Vol. 1 (USA) ROM is supported on bootstrap yet, just the EUR version (which is not supported on dspatch).

    It's supported, but you need to use 0.2.0 for some reason.

    This is really amazing, I just assumed Download Play would never get hacked...

    Could this be used to run flashcards that require a passme card, assuming the said passme card was lost?

    Can this be used with fwtool 1.60 on the DSi to backup/restore NAND dumps?

    This is great! Nice to know!
    Does that mean we could also run unsupported flashcards on a DSi as well?
